Post-Distribution Monitoring of Winter Cash Assistance - 2023
Other Household Survey [hh/oth]
UNHCR uses cash based interventions (CBIs) as a preferred modality for delivering assistance, offering greater dignity and choice in line with UNHCR’s core protection mandate. In order to ensure that the cash assistance provided meets the intended objectives and that desired outcomes are achieved, UNHCR conducts regular post-distribution and outcome monitoring (PDM) with a sample of cash recipients residing across the country.
This PDM follows the winter cash assistance programme in Poland in response to the arrival of refugees from Ukraine. The objective of the programme was to support vulnerable refugee families and individuals in addressing their basic needs, mitigating the impact of the winter price increases in rent, utilities and clothing. The programme was aimed at households who benefited from the multi-purpose cash assistance in 2022 and who had at least two specific needs identified within the household, with 3,437 households / 8,629 refugees benefiting.
A PDM assessment was carried out in March 2023. It consisted of a structured household-level survey using a tool developed by UNHCR, and data was collected, cleaned and analysed by UNHCR. The survey was administered via phone interviews to a representative sample of 352 beneficiary households. The sample frame included 1,088 beneficiary households that were not included in phone interviews for previous PDMs for the multi-purpose cash assistance programme.
This is an anonymous version of the original data collected and used for the primary analysis.
